    Lawmakers Reach Tentative Bailout Deal

    Top U.S. policy makers emerged from hours of tense negotiations with a clear message just after midnight Sunday morning: A deal to bailout U.S. financial markets has been agreed on and all that remains to be done is to commit the legislation to paper.

    Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.), were flanked by key negotiators in the Capitol as they announced that a $700 billion plan to have Treasury buy up toxic assets had been all but finalized after hours of exhausting negotiations.

    "I think we're there," an exhausted Mr. Paulson said, a sentiment echoed in the statements of negotiators such as House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D., Mass.) and Senate Banking Committee head Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.).

    Yes, and they're not just handing over the whole pile of money and not asking any pesky questions, as the original Paulson/Bush plan wanted.

    Is it fair to ask that these two should have known something?

    Also, has the Sec Treas. resigned yet? If not, why not?

    What are the plans to pay back the taxpayers for this Communist piece of legislation?

    Am I now a part owner of some banks?

    Will I be expecting some stock certificates in the mail soon?
